Fantastic views reaching all the way out to the channel islands on a clear day. Couldn't quite make it to the top because a small heard of cows with calfs parked it right on the trail near the top.

Also not too thrilled about parking for $5.. but alas, it is what it is.

Trail was not easy to follow. Went close to sunset hours and took nice pics.

No shade and we did see a rattlesnake but overall great hike! We went around 7:30 am on a Saturday and were the only ones there. Will definitely be back.

Lots of stopping due to traffic lights

Trails are pretty washed out. Ascending the point was really sketchy with kids. The trail as shown didn’t work for us. We ended up cutting over to Mayan drive. Broken glass, trash and graffiti is everywhere around the point. Everyone got a good workout at least.

I would say this hike is one that is easy to stay on trail. the very big draw back is I would say I only found 3 or 4 shady spots on the 4 miles each way. i would highly recommend hat and sun screen for this hike, and a lot of water.

The rocky topography (boulders all around) distinguishes this trail from others in the L.A. area. Definitely a good workout-steady uphill climb to the peak (more intense toward the end). View from the peak is great, and the wind at the top offers a nice respite from the Simi Valley heat. You can also sign a trail log at the peak. Dogs will be fine for most of the hike, but will struggle with the final approach.

This trail is a hike. It a good incline to the top. But the views no picture can capture, you have to see for yourself. If you reach the top you can see all the way to the ocean! You also pass the 88/Nike Missile site from the Cold War. You will see cows and steer off the trail. As you get off the freeway and make your way there do not be deterred from the signs that say private bridge or area your are going to a public park your ok just take the road to the end ( it ends at the park ) there is a $5.00 fee but worth it.... enjoy

Great moderate workout on paved road above Chatsworth. Partly scenery of the city below.

Short hike, nice view, but mostly for rock climbers. Won’t go again.

Great hike to the top, many different ways to get there and back down and you can get lost. Rock formations are great and you will encounter so rock climbing. But lots of graffiti and beer cans..

First time hiking or doing anything physical in a really long time. Entered the trail at Larwin close to Chatsworth Park South. Followed the paved path till it ended and continued on the unpaved trail beyond it ... I wandered on a different trail by accident and found myself in a much rougher and steeper hike.... turned right instead of left after coming to a fork beyond the end of the paved path... There was still a trail but it was significantly tougher toward the top close to Lilac... Was worth it though and was proud of myself when I finally got to the sign. Now that I know where I turned wrong the next time should be much smoother! And btw... It’s still spring so watch that poison oak!

Great for dog walks / biking / running

To be fair, I wasn’t able to actually run the trail, so the score is for the views alone. And minus points for not being able to actually run it. The guard posted near the parking said there was filming going on ahead, and that SWAT was doing drills as well. But the views were amazing...There’s a lot of new construction going on just north of the 118. I didn’t see anywhere to pull off on the side of the road and park either, like the reviews state.
And parking is $5.
Would like to return and explore the area. Just have to remember my 5 bucks.

Hiked the trail from the start of Rocky Peak (off Rocky Peak rd ) to the end of Las Lljas ( off evening dr ) my fitbit showed about 11 miles. It was a great workout and some awesome views. But heads up not a lot of shade.

Great hike!

I love this trail, so beautiful when the mountains are green, and I love that it has views of both city and nature.

This is a wonderful hike! Total hidden gem! Pretty easy peasy, and the property owners gave us no trouble at all. Quite friendly!

Many years ago i found Indian artifacts (Chumash Indians) and fossils (small Great White teeth) in Browns canyon. You cannot access these areas unless you hike off the trail. No obvious trails leading there so exploration is a big part of this hike. They are found in specific areas. Not just laying around.

I've only done this when it's been in the 90's and it's damn good workout in those temperatures.
Pretty busy, even on a workday but quietens down mid morning.

Long hike up hill. Views are great. Can get pretty windy. Wear hiking shoes.

Went yesterday, was a hot day, but inside feels great since shady. Had to walk around the gated community at start to get to start of trail. It's not easy to get there since new community blocks it all. The hikers ruines the rich peoples views :) Also hard to always sty on the trail (at 2 points) so remember where you come from, and when you turn around. don't do so too late.

Short - not a clear path due to many options...

Shady but a lot of ticks.

Many ways to go up. There is a particular steep one on the north side of this rocky hill, it is a steep rock surface which is easy to get on with hiking shoes. We had great fun climbing up. Thought we were coming down from the same path, but one quick turn somewhere at the top led us to a completely different trail. The downhill trip was a pleasant one and turned out to be a shortcut to our parking along the Topanga Canyon Road. Would like to explore different paths in future visits. Lots of rock climbers horning their skills along the way!

Park on Poema Pl and walk up Bella Vista and you will find trail on the right of Bella Vista just before the entrance gate to the community. Look for brown wood fence. Not a bad wild trail. Very few people. Some bikers said they have seen bears on the trail. Lots of shade and small side trails. Mostly dry this time of year, but had a few puddles for a dog to drink. We went about 4 miles in, it was all quiet.

Lots of shade.

Hiked Stagecoach trail from back of Corriganville in Simi Valley to Chatsworth. It was a nice moderate hike, not too strenuous, but watch out for poison oak at top of section between Corriganville and Santa Susana Pass road! Once you get into Chatsworth the different trails are marked well.

It was fun particularly for my Golden Retriever who enjoyed the climbing over the boulders, but the amount of graffiti takes away much of its beauty unfortunately. Once you're at the top the views are nice.
